Recommended Posts

My  3 Attalea cohunes  are finally putting on some size and girth.  Maybe 25’ now after 4 years from 3 gal pot .Think good palm for warm 9 b locations.

Mike, those do look good! I’d say pretty impressive growth as well.

Those do look great and very happy. Good growth for such a short period.

Those are just babies. They will get immense, perhaps overwhelming in their present locations.

Look great. If you are zone pushing the good news is that they take years to form trunks. As long as the growing point remains underground in z9 they will recover from cold damage.

Those are some great looking monsters!  I have two in the ground about 30 minutes East of you, and they are not too terribly happy about nights at 28F and 30F with frost.  This is the bigger one last weekend, a couple of weeks after the second heavy frost.  It opened up a new frond that's not entirely pinnate and 1/3 as long as the previous ones, so I'm guessing it was conserving energy due to the frost damage.  Hopefully the next ones this spring will revert to "normal" sized.

Attalea Cohune took about the same damage as Arenga Pinnata, both plants of similar overall size.  But the Pinnata is a faster grower for me, so it is already pushing it's 2nd new leaf.  I also have seedlings of Attalea Phalerata, Butyracea and Brejinhoensis in my nursery area, all of which did ok in the freezes.  I have one Attalea Phalerata seedling in the ground, and it did remarkably well with the frost.  It bronzed for a few days and seems to be turning back a healthy green!
